Written by a Danish economist who spent many years as a researcher and consultant for the UN, this classic text analyzes the adoption of labor-intensive agricultural technologies in primitive and developing societies. Rather than seeing traditional communities as transformed by the introduction of technologies from outside, Boserup focuses on the internal pressure of population growth as the primary driver of agricultural developments. This reprint of the 1965 text features a new introduction by Virginia Deane Abernethy (Vanderbilt U.). Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
